I had a problem with forced closing of programs (presumably as a measure of protection against OOM). I wanted to get rid of this by removing nohang, but even after I removed nohang, I cleared all directories that mentioned nohang (by removing the package with " paru -Rss nohang "
,after deleted all directories with the name of the package
" find. -name 'nohang' ")
, and this did not lead to any result, except that the notification about the lack of memory was gone, but the programs still closed.

What program were you trying to run?
As you only have 4gig of ram


This is a really limited amount of RAM for a modern desktop OS. You might want to upgrade your PC hardware at some point.


this application close problem has happened to almost every one of my everyday apps (discord, firefox, telegram) and the problem here is that on a different system (pure arch) without nohang pre-installed, these and other memory-intensive programs didn't cause problems with OOM and worked stably. I just need to disable this annoying daemon that closes my programs without my knowledge.

How much RAM does that one have?

The problem here is that this is a different system.

It is not Arch.

If you wish to know more about why this is so, please spend a bit more time investigating before removing integral system parts then complaining when it goes tits up. No matter it was in a very clumsy manner.

I run plain old Arch & various DE/WMs on an old, 2010 low-end 2nd Gen. Intel laptop without problems as long as I don't try to exceed the limitations inherent in running a new system on old hardware. When I install Garuda dr460nized it slows to a crawl, and even the most conservative settings do little to improve the 'feel' of it. Not so much the WMs, although I'm just beginning exploring them. Upping the RAM to 6 gigs with old boards scavenged from otherwise dead PCs helped quite a bit, but still not enough for dr460nized.

So my suggestions are thus;
install more RAM and,
Use a less intensive DE or WMs and,
Less aggressive Garuda settings or,

Run vanilla Arch since you're successful in that. I do. You can easily add the Chaotic-AUR repository and Garuda has all their configs at Garuda Linux · GitLab (as shown on the page header) so it's easy to make it nearly-Garuda, and a fair shake for that old dungmobile you're driving. :wink:

And welcome to Garuda Linux! :smiley:


Hi there, welcome to the community.

You can disable nohang from Garuda Assistant. But beware You are responsible for your pc hanging and any data loss that may happen due to it.


I already disabled the item "nonang enable" and it did not help

In which case it's not related to the nohang service.

As already pointed out, 3GB of RAM is not enough for a modern desktop OS.
